>> stephi, stephi, stephi -- ♪ do you love me ♪ >> stephy, stephy, stephy -- ♪ love me ♪ >> stephanie: 1973. oh man. >> long time ago.
6:26 am
>> we talked about this on the show. >> really? >> stephanie: was i always here? >> yes. >> stephanie: why were you at bobby sherman's house? >> i don't know. >> stephanie: maybe you were lost. you really didn't know what to do. >> is that a reference to a bobby sherman song? >> yes. >> bobby sherman was way before my time. >> he had this big replica of main street u.s.a. from disneyland. >> now i love him. >> stephanie: now you're jealous. >> i'm totes jelly. >> movie theatre with mickey and donald when we were kids. >> stephanie: so that happened. 1-800-steph-12 the phone number. ben in rockville maryland. welcome. >> caller: hey, i miss you guys so much out here. the local conservative talk out here had the president of the nra on so i called in and i was like hey you know, the nra supports this -- is opposing this treaty that was just passed
6:27 am
in the u.n. regulating the international sale of firearms. and 140 some countries voted for it. 20 some abstain and only three countries voted against it. the nra wants this to happen and the three countries are iran, north korea and syria. i'm like why don't you ask him about that since you've got the president of the nra on. of course, they never do. >> stephanie: didn't get around to that. >> caller: that's the company the nra is keeping. let's not try to make it anything else. that's the company the nra is keeping. >> stephanie: absolutely. all right. speaking of the -- wow everybody was talking guns yesterday. jay carney the president's press secretary. >> the president has always recognized this is something that would be a challenge. but was an obligation of all of us to work on and to try to get done. >> they were talking about guns because the nra -- well, they don't say they're with the nra but the nra released a study from the nra school task force.
6:28 am
>> no affiliation with the nra. >> no, no not at all. >> stephanie: no gun has ever killed anyone ever. >> our studies show that guns belong in all schools. okay thanks. didn't expect that from you. >> stephanie: this study -- fried chicken is the absolute most healthy food and should be in every home for every meal. [ ♪ "world news tonight" ♪ ] >> stephanie: all right. the president's carney again. >> he believes that passion that urgency still exists around the country and still exists if not in full then in part in washington. >> stephanie: once again something the people are way ahead of the politicians on. it is just -- even i have to say i'm surprised this is bogged down to this degree this quickly. it really is. asa hutchinson, the director of the nra's school's task force. >> which has no affiliation with
6:29 am
the nra. >> the presence of an armed security or personnel in a school adds a layer of security and diminishes response time. >> stephanie: um, as i've said before, i don't necessarily think this is a bad idea it is just that they won't look at any other part of the solution. >> it is always more guns. >> stephanie: yes. the solution to every gun problem. >> i think bill press was talking about it the other day. something in new york where new york city policemen who were well-trained in firearms, i don't remember the exact situation was but they ended up wounding nine bystanders. these are guys who have had a lot of training. >> stephanie: you just activated that right wing caller. remember that guy? hello, i'm president for cops for cop killer bullets. i don't understand why -- 29 minutes after the hour. right back on "the stephanie miller show."
6:30 am
support the drug war you must be high. cenk uygur: i think the number one thing viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. i think the audience gets that i actually mean it. michael shure: this show is about being up to date so a lot of my work happens by doing the things that i am given to doing anyway. joy behar: you can say anything here. jerry springer: i spent a couple of hours with a hooker joy behar: your mistake was writing a check jerry springer: she never cashed it (vo) the day's events. four very unique points of view. tonight starting at 6 eastern.

>> we need to talk about -- >> stephanie miller. >> she's unfocused, scribbling nonsense, living in a world of her own. >> stephanie: you show me funny kitty pictures, that's why i'm unfocused. what's the cat doing hanging down the blinds. >> he says just trying to fix it. >> stephanie: we know you did it. [ applause ] 34 minutes after the hour. 1-800-steph-12 the phone number toll free from anywhere. melissa in north carolina, hi,
6:35 am
melissa. >> caller: hi, steph. i heard a very interesting thing yesterday on ed's show. he think every representative, senator, congressman should take a field trip and they should have to shoot a pistol, a rifle an automatic semi-automatic. they should have to reload a magazine and maybe once they have, you know, that true experience with it, maybe just maybe, they'll see how powerful they are and vote sensibly. but i would definitely pay for the video for that. see them all. sometimes it is just the fact that they -- they're voting on things based on politics and not real life experience. i want them to have that experience and see what it really feels like. you know? >> stephanie: yeah. absolutely. all right, honey, thank you. asa hutchison used to be a congressman. he's now the director of the nra school task force which jim has nothing to do with the nra.
6:36 am
>> of course not. where would you get that crazy idea? >> stephanie: very loosely affiliated. >> go into a mall, there's security. and so there's security here at the national press. >> stephanie: once again i said barbara boxer is not -- obviously a liberal senator. has said i think she suggested the national guard in the schools. simply could be part of the problem. i'm not a parent. if i were, i can understand being -- >> part of the solution is keeping guns out of the hands of some people. especially ar-15. >> stephanie: and the magazines. after all of this happened this time, it seemed like this was a no-brainer to get this stuff done. it is amazing how out of step this congress is including some of the democrats with what the american people want. asa hutchinson again. >> if you are interested in making our schools safer and to save children's lives look at
6:37 am
these recommendations seriously. >> stephanie: i was telling someone yesterday, i'm as you know too high-strung to be a parent anyway because what i would do is i would tell my child they're sick. i would put them in a plastic bubble. >> just like john travolta. >> home school. >> stephanie: yeah. you know, i would bed -- be really good to them. i know you want to play. >> you let your dogs roll around in their own crap on the backyard lawn. >> stephanie: it would be like an 18year long punked. >> have some chardonnay with your cornflakes. >> that's all you've got in the fridge. >> stephanie: it's grape juice. >> it is fermented grape juice. asa hutchinson. >> we can address assault weapons and it doesn't stop
6:38 am
someone bringing in a .45 caliber firearm into a school. >> but if you only have six rounds instead of 100 -- >> stephanie: now i can't even remember some of the numbers. it was only five minutes in newtown. how many casings did they find? >> 100 and something. five minutes from the time he entered the school to when he killed himself and that's the kind of carnage he was able to wreak. what's his name again asa. >> we make sure when someone purchases a firearm that it is going to someone who is qualified to own it. we're all for that. >> what i hear you saying is you're open to expanding background checks. >> absolutely. i'm open to expanding background checks. you can do it within a way that does not infringe upon an individual. >> stephanie: something that has no real teeth in it. >> doesn't infringe in any way on anything. >> stephanie: theoretically i'm for background checks.
6:39 am
in any actual way -- >> not to be enforced at all. >> stephanie: we'll have to leave it there then. all right. mark mattioli, pro nra newtown father all over tv yesterday. >> i think politics needs to be set aside here and i hope this doesn't lead to name calling but rather this is recommendations for solutions. real solutions that will make our kids safer. >> except the solutions that count like keeping you know, 100 round magazines out of the hands of lunatics. >> stephanie: there was an article about how these two issues, marriage equality and guns are you know, kind of intertwined because they're both very emotional and you know, that's the thing. you can't -- people get very emotional on both sides of the issue. that's why i'm saying that -- but i feel like our side is saying yes, that's part of it.
6:40 am
maybe we should have armed security in schools. i don't think teachers. that's a dumb idea. >> they've got their hands full. >> who is going to pay to arm every single teacher and train every single teacher. >> you get training with the nypd incident where nine bystanders were injured while they were shooting the bad guys. these are guys who had extensive firearm training. so yeah. >> stephanie: here he is again, mark mattioli. >> i'm putting it on you and the experts out there to do something with these recommendations, to implement solutions so people don't have to go through what i'm going through. >> well, live in canada. >> stephanie: that's a more immediate solution. stu in georgia you're on "the stephanie miller show." hey, stu. >> caller: yes, how you doing steph? how are the mooks? >> stephanie: good. the mooks are fine. >> caller: first time caller. a long-time watcher on current. >> stephanie: okay. >> caller: i find ironic that an assistant district and a dict
6:41 am
attorney in texas probably one of the most gun totingest states in the union get gunned down in public and at a home and there's still no push for gun control. s really, really ironic. i'm willing to bet they were probably republican, too. >> stephanie: i don't know. but if newtown isn't enough, i don't know what is. really? we have to go something more horrific than that? dennis van roekel is the nea president. >> they want a safe learning environment. parents don't want their kindergartener to pass someone with a gun on their way to class. >> stephanie: yeah, i mean, teachers are understandably nervous about adding more guns to the school situation. let's go toed in minnesota. you're on "the stephanie miller show." hey, todd. >> caller: good morning, stephanie. >> stephanie: good morning. >> caller: we ought to consider using the nra method when it comes to asking north korea to back down. they've threatened to restart their nuclear program.
6:42 am
why don't we use the nra's suggestion and give nuclear weapons to every country? because the more people that have them -- >> stephanie: what could go wrong? exactly. >> caller: the only way to stop bad guys with weapons is more weapons. let's give weapons to everybody. >> sort of goodish guys with weapons. >> stephanie: he was making a point using humor. he was utilizing humor and hyperbole and exaggeration. >> hyperbole is the highest form of exaggeration. see what i did there? >> stephanie: yes. diane in north carolina, you're on -- >> i need a big bowl for my cereal. i need a hyper bowl. >> stephanie: hi, diane welcome. >> caller: hi, i wanted to let everybody know that north carolina is really trying to become the most craziest state. our legislature is trying to introduce a bill to make an official state religion. >> wow.
6:43 am
really? >> isn't that unconstitutional? >> caller: yeah, but they believe according to the tenth amendment the federal government -- they can kind of skirt around the first amendment. >> stephanie: are they getting jealous of kansas' crazy. are they trying to outcrazy kansas? >> caller: we've got our first republican supermajority with a republican governor and they've just gone completely insane. i cannot wait until 2014. i absolutely can't. >> stephanie: let's hope people are paying attention. >> completely mental, i must say. >> stephanie: kansas, quarantine a.i.d.s. patients. what is this? 1983? >> we didn't do that in 1983. >> stephanie: exactly. jacob is 12 and he's from virginia. hello, jacob. >> caller: hi, stephanie. how are you doing today? >> caller: good. i'm conservative. i think i understand the assault weapons ban. i understand -- look, i'm a kid. we want to make kids more safe.
6:44 am
>> stephanie: what does conservative mean to you? >> caller: conservative, to me, means -- it means conserving the values and certain morals but -- >> whose morals? >> caller: that makes sense to me. >> whose morals are you conserving? >> caller: i don't believe imposing religion but i don't think -- this whole north carolina thing, i don't agree with it. i don't think we should -- but i don't think being anti-abortion is creating religion or any of that. >> stephanie: okay. all right. >> caller: i just wanted to give my comment about gun control. >> stephanie: okay. >> caller: look, the whole banning magazines thing it is like if i say no refills on large sodas. restaurants say no refills on large sodas. i can go and take small sodas and get refills. >> stephanie: i agree with you
6:45 am
on that. >> caller: all right. assault weapons ban, i know a former prosecutor in washington, d.c. who banned all guns and the murder rate tripled. in chicago. >> stephanie: what? what do your parents do? >> you know a federal prosecutor? >> caller: yes. >> you hang out with federal prosecutors? >> no. they came to speak at my school. >> so you don't know him. >> caller: my teacher -- he came to speak and he -- i met him. >> stephanie: okay. what was your point, i'm sorry. >> caller: guns in the hands of good people is a good thing. i don't think an assault weapons ban will do anything. >> stephanie: jacob, it did. we had an assault weapons ban and once it expired assaults have tripled. >> caller: washington, d.c., i'm telling you, this prosecutor told me that the murder rate tripled. you can't ban guns. we have a second amendment to protect us.
6:46 am
>> stephanie: so you're going to protect yourself with a gun. but see jacob -- they have drones. >> caller: our great, great grandfathers didn't have guns from hitler. communists took the guns. they were the only ones that took the guns and they won and killed millions of people. come on. hitler killed 12 million people. >> stephanie: how is the school system in virginia these days? >> caller: i disagree with you politically. >> stephanie: it is okay. do you do research on conservapedia? >> caller: no. >> you're spewing nothing but talking thoughts and not having a rational thought. >> caller: i think -- everybody -- i can't believe that you're throwing insults. >> not insulting you. just telling you what you're doing. >> caller: if i disagree with you politically, you throw the insults. what school system do you go to? >> jacob not insulting you.
6:47 am
i'm telling you what you're doing. >> stephanie: there were a few historical facts there that were not correct. >> did you live in washington, d.c.? >> stephanie: yes, i was born there actually. >> were you there when the assault weapons ban was there? >> no. >> caller: my friend was. >> your friend, the federal prosecutor. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: jacob i enjoyed the call. i'm sorry. we didn't mean to insult you. chris is a douche. >> see what you did? you insulted me in order to make him feel better. >> stephanie: he's 12. leave him alone. >> the assault weapons ban worked. >> stephanie: i can't relate to him. >> violence went down when it was in effect, it expired gun deaths tripped. >> stephanie: i hung out with mostly defense attorneys when i was 12. >> different point of view. >> stephanie: you know how you ganged up with westside story. federal prosecutor. other side of it. went around snapping our
6:48 am
fingers. >> when you're a jet you're a jet all the way. >> stephanie: i was a little liberal even at 12. prosecutors, whatever. okay. 47 minutes -- >> jacob was calling from tel aviv. >> we'll take your assault weapons away. >> stephanie: 47 minutes after the hour. that was good! you're good today! >> yeah, but you called me a douche. >> stephanie: i wasn't pointing at you. i was pointing to him. you're the same lump of clay you usually are. right back on "the stephanie miller show." >> announcer: call stephanie now, she's easy. 1-800-steph-12. my own nuance on it. not only does senator rubio just care about rich people but somehow he thinks raising the minimum wage is a bad idea for the middle class. but we do care about them, right? vo: the war room tonight at 6 eastern

coming tree. we steal your dogs and guns and go to church and worship satan in drag. this quote comes from a tea party conference call with the republican congressman louie gohmert. he's also the guy who came up with the idea of terror babies. >> terror babies? >> what's a terror baby? >> stephanie: do you want the fun fact? this from mother jones. representative louie gohmert has been sounding the alarm about an insidious plot involving so-called terror babies. trademark you won'try gohmert. infants are known to be tears in their own right but this diabolical plan involves sending women to birth their america-hating spawns. the mothers and kids return home where the children could be raised and coddled as future terrorists and later, they can be sent in to help destroy our way of life. >> i see. um, hmm. proof of this would be? >> evidence. >> stephanie: we jump to -- even worse, we could have gay terror babies.

7:02 am
but nobody got more than 20% of the vote so it really means there's no front-runner at the moment so when it comes to polls like this, it is too soon although some supporters of hillary clinton would probably argue with me. while the former secretary of state gave a speech last night in d.c. to talk about women's rights around the world members of the super pac ready for hillary were cheering outside. the pac officially launched as of yesterday and told us to raise money and harness supporters who want to urge clinton to run in 2016. >> former governor mark sanford one step closer to a possible comeback this morning. he won his republican primary runoff yesterday and will go up against democrat elizabeth colbert bush on may 7th to see who is next to represent south carolina's first congressessal district. here he is shown voting yesterday likely for himself. he won 57% of the vote over former councilman bostick. he faces a tougher challenge. colbert bush is a moderate with

ashley judd has had a great career and she's done some wonderful things aside from being an actor and things that matter in terms of her being a senator. and nobody's talking about those things. >> her harvard degree. >> her harvard degree and humanitarian work. >> the u.n. >> she's gone to the congo. she's worked with an organization that i've worked. she's done a tremendous amount for women and women for women international. she is a youth a.i.d.s. -- she's been on the board of the organization. she's traveled to kenya and bob way. she's done a lot. does anybody talk about that? >> stephanie: so have you. you have a fancy ivy league degree too. just like jacki schechner. >> she's no louie gohmert. >> that's true. >> stephanie: we've had this larger discussion whether you decide to run or not about how you ever get good people to run and why -- because -- this was actually kentucky democrats too. you sent this to me, chris.
7:12 am
how kentucky democrats duped the mainstream media and helped elbow out ashley judd. this would make anybody not want to get into it. >> it is heartbreaking in a way. it does keep good people out. not just ashley but on a larger scale, there are a tremendous number of really qualified good people who don't want to run because they don't want to open up their personal lives or even just like a lie can become the truth as we've talked about here. if you have enough money to put it on the airwaves. >> stephanie: we were talking about this the other day. social media these days and the internet and stuff that didn't exist. jfk would never have been president, lyndon johnson wouldn't have been president. today, there were a couple of major things about ashley judd which were completely untrue but by the time they rocketed around the social media and into the mainstream media by the time they do retractions, it is too late. >> retractions are generally lame. it has been out there. >> retractions are buried. you never hear them.
7:13 am
>> and they're boring. >> stephanie: paul newman movie, absence of malice, who do i see about getting my reputation back. i know i'm misquoting it. don't give me that look. >> the accusations are written the size of the hollywood sign but the retractions are in fine print. >> i don't have the same kind of forget graphic memory i do for striptease. >> no chance i'm going to roll around neighbored in crazed porn with a bunch of drunken niblets trying to stuff up my who ha. >> stephanie: one of the things apparently. i hadn't even heard some of this. the most egregious disinformation came from entirely anonymous source. one was that judd told a group of supporters at a private dinner i've been raped twice so i think i can handle mitch mcconnell. her comparison of sexual assault led people to classify her as the democratic version of todd
7:14 am
akin. the problem is it never happened. >> i remember when that came out and i remember thinking did she really say that? it is a horrible thing to say. but it is not true. >> stephanie: the guy in the "daily beast" writes i was at the dinner. i never heard her say anything like that. what's more, such a statement would have been completely inconsistent with the way i've heard her discuss her horrible experience of sexual assaults. you think you know, by the time this went through -- >> it was in breitbart it must be true. >> exactly. it is discouraging. when i read things like that and i hear things like that, it does give me pause to think do i really want to open myself up to things that aren't even true about myself. >> stephanie: those picture that have hit the internet of you, me and jacki schechner debauchery. >> do i really want to explain it regularly? >> stephanie: we can explain everything. but i'm just saying.
7:15 am
the second big lie involved the big dog, bill clinton. they began to press the narrative he was for the other -- who is the other gal? >> lundergan. >> stephanie: because her father was a friend. obviously bill clinton still holds enormous clout in a lot of places, particularly there. abc news ultimately cleared up the record. by then, the narrative was set. most popular figure was opposed to a judd candidacy providing oxygen to the anti-ashley whatever. but i'm sad because the "daily beast" piece finishes by saying imagine mcconnell sitting back watching the antics with his sly, tight grin on his turtle face. >> i don't think it says turtle face in the "daily beast"% article. >> it did. >> stephanie: how a small group of democrats duped the media into creating the false media of a civil war. what they're saying is the bottom line is he will probably win. now we don't have a strong candidate. >> she is a strong candidate.
7:16 am
she may not even run. she may run for governor, this woman. so they're not even guaranteed that the candidate they were hoping would run is going to actually run for this office. >> stephanie: she may run for another office. >> then mcconnell is back in. you know, i understand why the democrats were concerned about an ashley judd candidacy because it would become about her which i think also speaks to your larger issue that they would attack her for being an actress. attack her for things that have never to do with her ability. >> actor in political office. oh, wait a minute. >> why should that discount us anyway? we do a lot of other things, too. and plus, exactly. >> stephanie: you were saying you can't wear low-cut things anymore. >> i know. >> stephanie: there are some things like that. >> there are lots of pictures of me like that. it is how i like to dress. >> stephanie: certainly jim would never vote for you! he is outraged. >> outraged i had to look at the pictures over and over again. >> just to make sure!
